Machines & Motion
NEW! Investigate the science behind simple machines, gravity, magnetism, and more! This one-of-a-kind hands-on outreach program brings the physics of force and motion to life. First, we’ll explore force – the “push and pull” that powers our world as we build ramps, “fish” for magnets, and explore chemical reactions. Then, you’ll become a physicist yourself to build gravity-powered magnetic marble courses, put torque to the test using real tools, build using magnetic blocks, use levers to launch payloads, and more…! Scientists use machines and motion to explore the world around us. But the most important gadget of all? Your brain!
